The organisers of Furnace Fest took to Instagram to announce the return of the festival with a statement that reads; ‘Furnace Fest took a seventeen-year nap before a group of us banded together with hopes of a one-time reunion. After countless difficulties prompted by a global pandemic, the ‘one-time resurrection’ went so well that we knew it was only fair to share the experience again. With excitement levels beyond measure, we welcome over 90 bands on four stages in one, if not the, most unique venues on the planet. Furnace Fest is not a festival: we’re a family reunion of extravagant proportions.’
